WGHP-TV ^ | October 29, 2013

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Students at Winston-Salem State University are holding an event Thursday centered on Trayvon Martin, the teenager who was fatally shot last year by George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman was acquitted earlier this year of second-degree murder and manslaughter in Martin’s death.

The event is called Martin Had a Dream and is open to the public.

At 12 noon Thursday, a recording of 911 calls made on the night of Feb. 26, 2012 will be played at The Clocktower at WSSU.

People are asked to dress in black hoodies.

Martin had a hoodie on when he died.

Larry Little, an activist and a professor at WSSU, and Council Member Derwin Montgomery will be among a number of speakers.

At 6 p.m., there will be a night program at The Clocktower at WSSU in celebration of Martin’s life.

“They should call it “Martin had a (purple) drank” instead.”

No way. I heard it repeated a thousand times that it was “ICE TEA”!

Who knows why you just had to make that lean,
who knows why you became part of the gangsta scene,
who knows who sold you all them blunts,
who understood your whistles and your grunts,
who made you assault the neighborhood watch,
whose jewelry was that you were caught w/at school
who made you act the ghetto fool?

Why didn’t your Crip daddy stick around,
whose head on the pavement did you pound,
who had to make a decision that fateful night,
when you left him no escape and picked a fight,
who made the choice to mock and sass,
an armed watchman (you called “creepy ass”),
who could’ve gone home but didn’t there go,
instead walked towards a six foot deep hole.

This is the same University that was recently accused of changing the grades of Black students in order to make it appear that Blacks were doing better than they really were.

This should be seen as nothing but a rally to threaten George Zimmerman.

Maybe they can finally get him a headstone. I know that Cindy Sheehan’s son went without one for years.

Just an observation, if a white student on Halloween put on a black hoodie and claimed to be Treavon Martin, they would be called racist.

If a white student put on a black hoodie for this event, then all is well.

I sure wish the left would write a rule book explaining how to people doing the same thing one is racist and one is not.

It is almost like there are no rules other than, if they don’t like you, you are racist.

I wish there was an FR posting here from North Carolina that could get there. Print this up and pass around or even drop a few off at a few of those collegiate watering holes..

POTUS Obama ruthlessly used a Florida black on black episode where a black hispanic security guard named George Zimmerman was forced to shoot an adult sized black teen attacker 17 year old Trayvon Martin .

This occured in a secured mixed race modest means housing complex. Martin who never was approached or contronted by Zimmerman was killed when he attacked the unsuspecting security guard as he was returing to his vehicle. Martin was shot once during a struggle over the guards gun as he was pounding Zimmerman’s head on a cement walk where Zimmerman lay begging for help managed to get his gun first and shot his attacker.

The racism charge resulted from and was led by none other than The President of The United States Obama. Who considering sundry socialist communist objectives saw an opportunity to politicize the event and strike out against stand your ground gun control defence and promote and advance Stalinist type housing collectives which was done through subsequent statements refering to the episode released by HUD.. None of which had anything to with the episode Obama used to stop a losing base among black supporters

With the complicity of the regimes slavish devotion of the print and visual media as its propaganda arm they created a race war. It was declared when the POTUS (president of the United States) announced Martin the attacker ,of a black hispanic security guard George Zimmerman was a “victim”; Obama insisted to a compliant NBC, the attacker “(he) could have been my (his) son” and then subsequently proffered on CNN another cable venue claiming to report “news” “That could have been me”. Thus sacrificing a supporter, Zimmerman, for the benefit of the socialist collective.good..

Trayvon became a cause celeb. “Zimmerman became a white hispanic””The area he patrolled owned by rich jews” Trayvon was”a victim.”Stalked” “ Murdered in cold blood because he was black”” depicted as a 12 year old kid” “All duly reported and embellished upon to the point of hysteric hyperbole by the MSM and promoted by black publications throughout the counrty.The hyperbolic racist reporting are believed as facts by blacks particularly youths Each of the individual visual media alphabet soups ABC,CBS,MSNBC,CNN and NBC ,were falling all over each other curryring favor with the regime with their own particular “spin”. Contriubuting to the racial strife which is leading to killing of whites and hispanics because of what they created .

Since then the only distance the media from their reporting or POTUS Obama has made from these developments his been deathly silence-But what has been happening since this episode are continiuous attacks on whites and hispanics by gangs of young blacks often using racial epithets and Martins first name.when committing these crimes ending in deaths or serious injuries.throughout the country.These attacks have been reported locally often sanitized from their racial nature but never reported as a national trend because of the media and regimes complicity in promoting racial division which played a major role in creating the situation.

As of this review silence has also been the response on the part of the political opposition as well.

Fight club day or how to use concrete as a weapon day?

Or how to call a burglary tool found at school something else to avoid discipline?

The problem has been the focus on irrelevant arguments – some of which are actually unsupported by the evidence.

1. ‘George Zimmerman (GZ) racially profiled Trayvon Martin (TM)’ There is no evidence of this.

2. ‘GZ disobeyed an order by the police’ * The civilian dispatcher, Sean Noffke, testified that he did not give GZ an order and, in fact, he, like his fellow dispatchers, are trained not make comments that sound like commands. * Noffke also testified under cross that, as a result of his asking GZ which way TM was going, GZ could have reasonably interpreted this as being asked to follow Martin. * It is also not a crime in Florida to disregard a comment made by a civilian dispatcher.

3. ‘GZ got out of his car’ Not a crime on public property and not negligent either.

4. ‘GZ followed TM’ Again, anyone can follow anyone on a public street unless the followee has obtained a restraining order against the follower and even there, the RS only places time, place, and manner restrictions on the person enjoined.

5. ‘GZ wasn’t really injured’ * Under Florida’s self-defense laws, one doesn’t have to be injured AT ALL to use deadly force * No one is required to refrain from defending himself while another is engaged in or attempting to commit a felony.

6. ‘TM is dead through no fault of his own’ * If you believe that TM assaulted GZ, then he IS dead as a result of his own actions.

7. ‘GZ could have left’ * Under Florida law, there is not a duty to withdraw rather than use deadly force * TM was straddling GZ so how the latter was supposed to leave the scene is unanswered.

8. ‘GZ was armed and TM wasn’t’ * One’s fists can be considered weapons and can result in severe bodily harm or death. * GZ was legally carrying a weapon * There is no requirement under the law that the same weapon be used by the assailant * A homeowner can kill an intruder whether or not he has been threatened * Those that attack cannot feign surprise if they are met with superior firepower.

9. ‘Stand Your Ground!’ * SYG is NOT at issue in this trial. * The defense is a classic self-defense case.

10. ‘Black men NEVER get to use SYG!’ * Wrong http://tinyurl.com/nboht35

11. ‘GZ is a man and TM was a boy!’ * As if ‘boys’ don’t commit murder, rape, and assault everyday in this country.

I believe the NHL’s Florida Panthers are going to hold a George Zimmerman Night.

Win, lose or draw, the game will end in a shootout.

Cities need to begin naming streets after Travon.

As they did for Martin Luther King.

Fair warning to traveling public that they are entering territory of wild hoodlums.

Lets not get buried in minutiae. I think I cover the essential points. In my summary provided were there any errors in that reporting?

I covered this episode in detail in some of your many postings on this subject. Using some of the very material you posted in as reference.

A point that’s missed is this occured in a secured (gated) community. Access (inclides roads, streets, trails,and sidewalks), to individual dwellings is through private, not public, right of way, in fact the attack and shooting took place in such an area. So the diversion of leaving a vehicle to follow on foot which is legal in any case private, or public, on private right of way is moot. As a security guard Zimmmerman’s job was to maintain security.

In my cross referenced review all and more of what you replied to here is in the 3 page review. But for a handout of one page I think what I’ve posted here should suffice.

shame none of these people were there for TM while he was alive. shame Tracy and Sabrina couldn’t raise their son with the same conviction as they have for lecturing us on the need to repeal SYG. shame that they are so blinded by ‘victimism’ that they will never really know what killed their son..

I’m afraid I can’t attend, but I’m sure HBO will make a docu-drama or something... which they’ll play 90 times/week along with their showings of “W”.
